AFC Week 4 Recap: Jags win across the pond, Miami Dolphins fall to second place

With the Jaguars and Falcons kicking off Sunday at Wembley Stadium in London, to the Bills taking down previously undefeated Miami Dolphins, Week 4 was packed with action.

Buffalo Bills 48, Miami Dolphins 20

Miami Dolphins’ fans had high expectations for Miami going into this game after their previous 70-20 smackdown of the Broncos. But, on Sunday the Bills beat down the Dolphins 48-20.

The Bills were merciful on the field with their attack. Stefon Diggs finished the game with six receptions for 120 yards and three touchdowns. Josh Allen had four passing touchdowns and went 21 of 25 for 320 yards.

Tua Tagovailoa struggled to apply pressure and instead, the Bills were able to get to Tagovailoa before he could release the ball. The Dolphins’ quarterback was sacked four times by the Bills.

The Dolphins  are now tied with the Bills for first place in the AFC South standings.

Next up for Week 5, the Buffalo Bills (3-1) will travel across the pond to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday morning at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London. The Dolphins (3-1) will take on the New York Giants for an afternoon Sunday game.

Jacksonville Jaguars 23, Atlanta Falcons 7

The Atlanta Falcons fell to their second straight loss after the Jacksonville Jaguars took them down 23-7. Despite starting their season 2-0, the Falcons struggled to compete.

Atlanta’s offense fell rather flat. Desmond Ridder previously saw some success, but lost a fumble and threw two interceptions, posting a quarterback of 10.7. Jonnu Smith got things going with Ridder. Smith finished with a team high of 95 yards receiving.

With this win, the Jags were able to halt their two-game skid after their 10th game played in London. Jags quarterback Trevor Lawrence finished with 23-of-30 for 207 yards and Christian Kirk with eight receptions for 84 yards.

Next up, the Jags (2-2) will remain in London as they face the Buffalo Bills (3-1) Sunday morning. The Atlanta Falcons (2-2) will take on the Houston Texans (2-2) for Sunday afternoon football action.

Los Angeles Rams 29, Indianapolis Colts 23 (OT)

Former Gator quarterback Anthony Richardson had a remarkable rally for the Colts on Sunday despite falling 29-23 in overtime against the Rams.

The Rams had blown a 23-point lead during the final 20 minutes of regulation but recovered. Even though Matthew Stafford was playing with a hip injury, he threw a 22-yard TD pass to rookie Puka Nacua to secure the win for the Rams.

Rookie QB Richardson finished the game 11-of-25 for 200 yards and two TD’s, adding in 10 carries for 56 yards.

Next up, the LA Rams (2-2) take on the undefeated Philadelphia Eagles (4-0) on Sunday afternoon at 4 p.m. The Colts (2-2) will face off against the Tennessee Titans (2-2) at 1 p.m.
